Virginia Women in History
August 5 – September 4
Throughout Virginia’s history, women have played important, but often overlooked, roles as educators, entrepreneurs, health care providers, religious leaders, farmers, artists, writers, reformers, pioneers, laborers, and community builders. Annually, the Library of Virginia selects eight women of the past and present to honor with this special exhibit.

Learn about the most critical global issues facing American today. Participants read 12-16 page articles in the Great Decisions Briefing Book (available in the library or purchase your own copy) which provides background information, expert analysis, and suggested discussion questions on topics such as global health, Russia’s policies, military engagement, or China & America. Then, meet with others to discuss. This program is part of America’s largest discussion program on world affairs, sponsored by the Foreign Policy Association. If you enjoy the Great Decisions on PBS, this is the group for you!
